Egyptian Moderate Liberals

Doodad

Oh if only the nasty radical Muslim Brotherhood et al had not sneakily won all the votes. What a Garden of Eden Egypt would have been if the Moderate and Liberal factions had won......Hang on a second.....not so fast. Rubin points out the reality:


But how many “liberal” ”moderate” parties have had:
--A deadly shoot-out between two factions over control of their headquarters’ building?

--An alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood which might again be renewed.

--A deputy leader who explains that September 11 was a U.S.-Zionist plot; the Holocaust never happened; and Anne Frank was a phony?

--And now this article, courtesy of the party’s official newspaper, January 27, 2012. Thanks to MEMRI for catching and translating it. I’ll let you read the whole thing for yourself if you want but briefly the article charges that a small U.S. Navy Medical Research Unit in Cairo that conducts research on tropical and Third World diseases is in fact engaged in plotting to send: “Medicines, pesticides, food products, and seeds [to Egypt], after these have been dangerously tampered with so as to harm the Egyptians' health” and handling “biological weapons which, if deployed, could exterminate the entire Egyptian nation, or any other nation….” “They can also manipulate these Egyptian genes, alter their traits, and deform them by means of American medicines or vaccines that are sold dirt cheap to the poor Egyptian people, along with crop seeds and food products…. “ It suggests that various disease epidemics in Egypt were caused by the United States and charges that the U.S. installation, “sees the Egyptian children as an opportunity to test new medicines,” turning the country’s children into lab rats and causing increases “in infertility, mental retardation, and disability among Egyptians born in recent years... as well as [instances of] impotence.” And all this is done, “in accordance with America's will, which has Israel standing forcefully behind it" to develop biological weapons for Israel against Egypt."

Heh. Egypt, a hopeless case no matter who runs it.

UPDATED

Good old Egypt repays American support by detaining 19 American NGO employees including the son of American Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. The US is once again threatening to withhold aid. Like that ever works.

  1. Thanks for this, Doodad.

    In truth, who knows what is going to be going forward with Egypt?  Political Islam is now in charge there, as well as in a bunch of other Middle Eastern countries as we point out again and again.

    Will they maintain the peace?

    Will they arm Hamas and other groups who want to kill Jews, particularly Israeli Jews?

    All I know for certain is that the president of the United States seems to be sleepwalking through his foreign policy.  There's no there there.

    That and the president's political movement, the progressive movement, doesn't seem to mind the rise of radical Islam.

    There are reasons for this, I am sure, but none of them are any good.

    A talk on the Western mass media's racist (consciously and subconsciously intendedly genocidal) campaign against Israel, which is a campaign whose components are constituted by:

    O the Western media's hiding of information from the public
    O the Western media's presenting of false information to the public
    O the Western media's, and the Western, and global, political establishment's, holding of Israel, and only Israel, to a standard that no country lives up to, and that no country can live up to, and that no country could live up to

    A speech by former British Colonel Richard Kemp

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwlNHTFiO34

    Excerpt:

    "This malevolent portrayal of the IDF is carefully and systematically planned, cultivated, developed, expanded, and relentlessly driven forward. It is the key part of what amounts to nothing less than a pernicious, and increasingly dangerous, global conspiracy of propaganda aimed at the total delegitimization of the state of Israel - a conspiracy that has, so far, exceeded, in its international scope, anything dreamt of even by that master of propaganda, Dr. Joseph Goebbels himself - spreading the idea that Israel is so evil that it has no right to exist - aiming for the point where that idea becomes an acceptable mainstream argument in our Western societies.

    "It is no surprise, of course, that such a campaign has great popularity in the Arab, and the wider, world, anymore than Goebbels' twisted propaganda machine succeeded in persuading so many Germans to his murderous cause. But what is truly shocking is the traction that this propaganda has gained in the West, among student bodies, teachers, university authorities, academics, think tanks, human rights organizations, aid agencies, parliamentary bodies, and, perhaps most damaging of all, the mass media."

  10.  "There are reasons for this, I understand, but none of them are good reasons."

    Karmafish, its called Jew-hatred (anti-Jewish racism).

    anti-Jewish racism: culturally engrained in Western societies; conscious and subconscious; normal in Western societies; having the racist bigoted wrong views which constitute it being taken for granted by most culturally Western people - therein "invisible" to most culturally Western people; so normal in Western societies that even most Jewish people, and even most Jewish people who are trying to defend the nation of the Jewish people against a global Muslim and Western racist intendedly genocidal attack, are currently still unable to recognize it, and (in an extreme Stockholm syndrome fashion) currently still even willfully refuse to recognize it and call it out and vigorously repeatedly tell pertinent crucial facts and thereby dispel it and thereby dispel the extreme danger that is being posed).

    Maddening.

  11. Dan,
    I partially agree and partially disagree.

    Where I disagree is in the suggestion that most westerners are anti-Semitic.

    That seems to be your implication and, if so, I just disagree.  I would say quite the opposite.  Most westerners are not anti-Semitic, nor particularly interested in Jews, period.

    Where I agree with you is in this:

    "having the racist bigoted wrong views which constitute it being takenfor granted by most culturally Western people - therein "invisible" to most culturally Western people; so normal in Western societies that even most Jewish people, and even most Jewish people who are trying to defend the nation of the Jewish people against a global Muslim and Western racist intendedly genocidal attack, are currently still unable to recognize it" Invisibility.Most regular Anglo western-type white people do not care about Jews and they don't care about Israel and they are not particularly racist toward us or anybody else.Furthermore, they have no reason to be particularly interested in us.  Heck, it's not like we go around worrying about the fate of Cambodians, after all.What they are, tho, is often blind to anti-Semitic themes.  They just don't see it, because they don't understand it and they don't really care one way or the other.  This goes for "progressives" at least as much, if not more so, than conservatives who tend to be friendlier to both the Jewish state and the Jewish people.As you know, where I draw my line in the sand is radical Islam.By requiring that Israel stand down to Iran the Obama administration is, in effect, defending the capital of the genocidal Islamist movement.But, no, my friend, most westerners, including most western progressives, are not anti-Semitic.  They just don't understand it because they don't really think that they have much reason to.Which is, of course, why we cannot count on them.
